Sam Caligiuri files for US Senate

It appears that Sammy has officially entered the fray! I think he could make a fantastic US Senator... still wanna learn more about his views on monetary policy though. I already know that he votes in favor of fiscal responsibility as he was the only vote to oppose the current two-year budget.

From CTNJs Christine Stuart in June 2007:

After patting themselves on the back and talking about what they did and didn’t include in the budget, the Senate passed the two-year $36 billion spending plan with a 33 to 1 vote on Monday.

Sen. Sam Caligiuri, R-Waterbury, voted against the budget because... (it) includes large spending increases that will inevitably force the state to chose between large tax increases or large spending cuts in the not so distant future.

“We are going to pay the piper sooner rather than later,” Caligiuri said. He said his vote against the budget was the strongest way he could make that statement.

Go Sammy!

Tim White

p.s. I'm still kinda hoping Peter Schiff jumps in the race to force monetary policy to forefront of the debate.
